On January 1st 2023, Nottingham Forest faced off against Chelsea FC:

The 25-year-old Super Eagle was a handful for The Tricky Trees as they came from behind to snatch a point against the Blues at the City Ground on Sunday.

Taiwo Awoniyi troubled Chelsea’s defence, led by Cesar Azpilicueta and Senegal international Kalidou Koulibaly. His superb run from the left wing resulted in the corner which Ivory Coast defender Serge Aurier scored from to level matters.

Forest fans were challenged to pick their man of the match in a poll on the club’s Twitter handle, and Awoniyi, who was withdrawn in the 88th minute for Neco Williams, got 39.7% of the votes ahead of Aurier, who managed 28.4%.

Earlier today January 4th 2023, Nottingham Forest faced and won Southampton FC at Southampton’s home:

Taiwo Awoniyi scored the only goal which earned Nottingham Forest a hard fought 1-0 win away to Southampton in the Premier League on Wednesday, reports.

Awoniyi scored in the 27th minute, finishing from close range off an assist from Brennan Johnson. The Super Eagles striker has now scored four goals in 16 appearance in the English topflight this season.
